Okay, I've put this book down for awhile after finishing half of the stories for no reason other than that they are so intensely emotional, so intimate, so fantastic and real at the same time that I simply can't read more until I process this stuff. This collection is just a haymaker. It will knock you down its so good. Just try "The Lincoln Train" on for size. Or see if you can compare "Laika Comes Back Safe" to anything else you've ever read. I've only read one other book by this author, "After the Apocalypse," and that was astonishing, but this is just as good. I haven't felt this way about a writer since I was a kid and discovered Ray Bradbury for the first time. There's no reason to explain why Maureen McHugh isn't one the most famous writers in America right now, but believe me.. it's coming.

Ancestor Money, The Cost to Be Wise, and Nekropolis alone are worth the price of admission, as they say. Getting to the end of each story was like remembering to take a deep breath. Otherwise, some enthralling and excruciating explorations of obligations when disease, deterioration, or. . .you know. . .death afflicts a family member. I loved the pervasive presence of authentic female characters, internal dialogue made plain without fuss or obfuscation.
